*Real* mincemeat does, the home-made stuff like your grandmother and I 
make.  The fake stuff you get in jars at the modern market doesn't.  
Also, suet in English-type Christmas puddings.

One could make an argument for lard or suet pie crusts.  That argument 
applies to dietary issues more than flavor profiles however.
